. it looks like all the incentive for obama, after they are saying the world's going to come to an end and running around with their hair on fire, they better make this as bad as they can make tinstead of managing it for the least effect, when have you a 21% increase in the payroll for civilians at the defense department, why do you talk about cutting back aircraft carriers? there is a real fear in my mind that the administration's political agenda is, try to make this look as bad as it can, where everybody else has ever been faced with this, try to do the least impact possible because it is not a big number. sequester's a bad system. that's not the right way to do it. but look, it was obama's idea -- >> shannon: which he says it wasn't. but jack lew, the idea allegedly bubbled through him. but the president will say that congress came up with tthey have to solve it. >> the fact of the matter is -- i don't want to say the truth, it was the white house's idea. the other important fact is in the last year, republicans in the house have twice passed legislation to do away with the sequest

of the union address, president obama himself admitted that these cuts were a really bad idea. the president failed to mention was that the sequester was his idea, proposed by his administration during the debt limit negotiations. >> president obama made no mention of sequester in his saturday address, pointing out instead that progress has already been made in deficit reduction. >> over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion, which puts us more than halfway towards the goal of $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists say we need to stabilize our finances. now we need to finish the job. >> in the midst of all this, congress taking next week off for president's day. arthel? >> arthel: i'm chuckling. steve, thank you very much. >> you bet. >> new reports say that murders thankfully are now plummeting in the notorious mexican city of juarez. clearly that is good news from a safety standpoint. but it's causing for some a viesing problem for the real estate market on the u.s. side of the border. patrick manning has the detail

. they brought up the fact that it might be because of the obama effect. we have seen our first african-american president and that may bring operated him. in and details and republicans there is a break. >> gregg: throw that up. that is a huge difference, isn't it? >> yes, it is. we saw during the george bush years, republicans were more optimistic. we have seen more wealthy and republicans a huge drop-off. it went from 75% in 2008 who were optimistic to 30% right now. in part, democrats are more optimistic because they their president is in offe, they have more optimism about his policies and republicans converse is true. >> gregg: clearly you are optimistic personally? >> i am. >> gregg: because you are wearing bright red today? >> yes, go niners! we're both from california. look at you, wearing orange, what team is that. >> gregg: is that tampa? they are like the biggest losers in the n.f.l. i'm a loser. >> no. >> gregg: i lived for eight years in san francisco. i love the niners, during the heyday of steve young and joe montana. >> i grew up in watsonville, california. >> watsonvil

. that statement from president obama is ridiculous. if you look at u.s. oil consumption, it's been declining for a long time now. last year we consumed 18.6 million barrels of oil a day, which i the same amount we consumed in 1996. so u.s. oil consumption is going down. not about the u.s. consuming more oil. western european oil consumption is going down. i you want to know where the growth is coming. , it's emerging marks like champion and india. china consumes two barrels of oil per person per year compared to the u.s. at 22 and at it just going to keep going -- >> it's not how much we're using but access to how much we're getting? the president says he has been more open to opening up land than anyone prior. you say what? >> well, i don't think so. obviously the u.s. energy companies are having some success. u.s. oil production has been rising for three years. u.s. and canada are the only two countries outside opec, showing any growth at all. but there's a lot more we can do. another big problem is the enable to build new pipelines to actually move oil from all these new fields in north d

republicans have the fort attitude to let it take place. it was president obama's bright idea in 2011 when he failed to get any negotiation with republicans over the debt ceiling. he said guys, i have an idea, it's called sequester. $1.2 trillion over 10 years. you know what republicans said in we don't like that you want half the cuts to come from defense. no, we're going to do it. now the president doesn't want it because he's not interested in cutting. >> they both signed on to the agreement. i called it a backup backbone. but i agree with you on this, the cuts are not cuts, they're shaving off the growth of varies programs in the future so nothing is outright cut. in a $3.5 trillion budget, $82 billion is a joke. having said that, it's better than nothing. it's better than just letting this pass by. >> right. you know why it's better? the american people have said that the debt in our debt deficit is their biggest worry. pew research did a study and guess where the deficit and debt was with american people. number one. american people know what's good for the country but the president doe
